Sephora Paris Haul

Ever since I heard Sephora is in Paris, I've always wanted to see how different the Sephora France is to the American Sephora. I found a cheap flight to Paris, so I took advantage of it and headed to Paris for the day. 

Sephora was the first shop I stopped at in Paris, so I was excited to see how different it was to visiting the American stores. Staff were coming up to me speaking French. I said sorry I don't speak French and carried on looking around the store. There was the usual Sephora branded makeup and skincare, some brands the same as in America and French brands. I was in a rush and limited to liquids I could take on the plane back home, so I ended up grabbing the Sephora favourites - Girly look selection, a couple of the Sephora lip stories lipsticks and a Too Faced palette. I headed to the till and the woman started speaking French. I knew I was going to have a problem, as I wanted to get one of the Sephora France loyalty cards to show I've been to a Sephora France. I spotted a photo of the Sephora loyalty card on the checkout desk, so I pointed and she spoke in French. I said English ? I read on the Sephora website, different countries have a different loyalty card because different currencies and exchange rates and anyone can have the ad even if you don't live in the country. I then showed her my Sephora beauty insider card I got from Sephora in America. The woman just kept replying "French no no". I have no idea if she was saying she only speaks French or she was telling me you have to live in France for the card. I gave up realising with the language barrier, I was getting no where.

Products I bought :

Sephora Favourites Girly Look Collection
Too Faced Chocolate Chip Eyeshadow Palette 
Becca Glow On The Go Highlighter Set 
Sephora Lip Stories Lipsticks: City Beat and Golden Gate

I did however notice when I got home, the Sephora Favorutes Girly looks set was reduced from €29.90 down to €17.90 and it's went through full price on the receipt. I checked the Sephora France website and it's showing at €17.90 online aswell. I looked on twitter and Sephora seem to direct everyone who bought from Sephora France to the French website, however it's all in French. I filled out the contact form nearly a month ago and no reply.

Boots Sale Haul

I try not get to buy from sales, unless I really need the thing. Boots do Soap and Glory promotions all year round, so my bathroom cupboard is always well stocked. I do however like that Soap and Glory do limited edition Christmas products, so buy them half price after Christmas. I've also wanted to try the brand GlamGlow, which have a few sets in the sale. 

These are the things I picked up at the Boots sale.

Products :
Soap and Glory : The Lime Life £5
Soap and Glory : Wish Upon A Star £4
GlamGlow : Thirstymud Set £24
Krispy Kreme nail varnish £5

NYX Haul

I am still stuck saying "NYX", as in letters. Once I assume how to pronounce something, there's no way out. I watched a YouTube video a while ago and someone said it's pronounced "nix". Here I am still saying "NYX". Scotland has a small section of NYX in drugstores, so it always amazes me seeing the lip bar in a NYX store. You don't realise how many different things a brand has, till you see a store.   

While visiting New York, I stopped at NYX in Union Square. I always go straight to the lip bar to check out the newest range, then look at what makeup I've not seen before. I wandered round picking up a few products from the lip bar and and an eyeshadow pallet. I then headed to the till not thinking how much I'd spent and it came to $73. He said it came up on the screen I spent $70, so I was entitled to free makeup. I expected him to give a sample size, so I was surprised when he came back with an eyeshadow pallet, the wonder stick and an Illuminating stick, which come to $39 alone.    

Products : 

Lip cream Metals : Elite
Lip cream Metals : Crystalized Metal
Liquid Suede Metallic Matte : Exposed 
New York Lip, Eye, Face Collection
In your element Metal Palette 

Free Products :

Strobe Of Genius Illuminating Palette
Illuminating Stick : Chardonnay Shimmer
Wonder Stick : Light / Medium

Glossier Showroom Haul

As I said previously, I went to Glossier Showroom and bought some products. I didn't know anything about Glossier, as it was my first time visiting the Showroom and I'd never bought anything from the Glossier website before. I wanted to buy one or two things to try the brand out, but everything looked so pretty. I found myself ticking everything on the order form, that I liked the sound of. It came to $125, but It's not everyday I can go to New York to visit Glossier Showroom.
